delicious, crunchy yet juicy appetizer or side dish.  Not a lot of ingredients are needed, just Chinese eggplants, egg and bread crumbs. It’s quick and easy.

INGREDIENTS Capture

2 Chinese eggplants, sliced lengthwise into thin, 3-inch pieces

1 egg, beaten

1 cup, Panko bread crumbs

Salt and pepper to taste

Olive oil for frying

Ketchup for the dip

DIRECTIONS

Heat Olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Season eggplant pieces with salt and pepper to taste.  Dip each eggplant piece into the egg batter before coating both sides with bread crumbs.  Fry breaded eggplant pieces until the breading turns golden brown on either side.  Remove from heat and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil.
